A STUDENT from Ilminster has earned a first class honours degree after completing her studies at the University of Worcester.

Faye Neale, 28, studied at the Somerset Centre for Integrated Learning, one of the university's partner institutions.

She said: “I have loved returning to education and have enjoyed the academic journey immensely; earning a First was incredible, especially considering that I have a young family and worked full time alongside my studies. 
“It was great that all my hard work paid off. I will begin a PGCE course with Dorset SCITT in September and look forward to achieving my goal of becoming a qualified primary school teacher in a year's time.
